Woodlands Encounter

Don't let her sacrifice be in vain. You have to think carefully about what you'll do next. Your mother wanted you to have that shield, right? You need to take it to the temple!
— Darios, to Rowan and Lianna

Home in Ruins (Japanese: 故郷をあとに Home in Ruins) is the first chapter of Fire Emblem Warriors. While trying to escape the city, Rowan and Lianna end up receiving aid from a mysterious masked swordsman.


Main article: Home in Ruins/Script

Continuing from the last chapter, Rowan, Lianna, and Darios successfully make it to the city from the escape route. The twins express their regret in not being able to save their mother and their feeling lost without her. Darios tells them not to let her sacrifice be in vain and reminds them they must head to the temple. However they are quickly beset by monsters, forcing the three of them to fight their way out.

At some point during their escape, Rowan and Lianna find themselves surrounded. Rowan charges at one monster, only to be knocked over along with his sister. As the two of them sit helpless, a masked swordsman appears and saves them in the nick of time. The swordsman introduces himself as Marth and continues to assist the group until they are able to reach the escape point. As the three royals leave the city, Rowan and Lianna wonder who Marth was and where he went.


With their mother's screams still ringing in their ears, Lianna and Rowan escape safely into town. However, they're soon swept into another battle without so much as a minute to mourn their loss.

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

Unlike in other Fire Emblem games, Vulneraries are automatically replenished after each battle, so don't feel restricted in using them.

Marth has his entire combo chain unlocked, so feel free to use him if you feel restricted by the twin's current combo chain. However note that Marth will not gain any experience and will leave the party before the end of the chapter.


  • This is the only story chapter to have a character restriction in Free Play mode, as Lucina cannot be deployed.
